VIII. 契約の閉回路 桎梏の乙女
 Keiyaku no Heikairo Shikkoku no Otome
 The Closing of a Contract, A Maiden in Chains
Vocal: Mitsuki
Arrangement: RD-Sounds
Lyrics: 少女病
Circle: 少女病
Album: Vision -誓約の閉回路 桎梏の乙女-

燃え落ちる残骸を 放心するようにただ眺めていた
信じようとしていた事 何もかもが瞬く間に灰燼に帰す

moeochiru zan’gai wo houshin’suru you ni tada nagameteita
shin’jiyou to shiteita koto nani mo ka mo ga matataku ma ni kaijin’ ni kisu

Kuuderika stood staring shocked at the burning wreckage of her home
Everything she had tried to believe in had in an instant turned to embers and ash

小さな手に唯一繋ぎ残った光は
庇うように信じついてきてくれた彼だけ

chiisa na te ni yuiitsu tsunagi nokotta hikari wa
kabau you ni shin’ji tsuitekitekureta kare dake

The only light left for her small hands to hold was
The boy Sess, who had believed in, protected and followed her

飲み込まれる 夜に暗闇の底に
泡沫のように儚く消える幻想《Vision》
生まれてくることも 死にゆくことも
必ず何かの意味があるんだ

nomikomareru yoru ni kurayami no soko ni
utakata no you ni hakanaku kieru vision
umaretekuru koto mo shiniyuku koto mo
kanarazu nanika no imi ga arun’da

She was swallowed up in the depths of the dark of night
Her transient vision disappearing like foam on the water
Surely in both birth and death
There must be some kind of meaning

少女が明日に持っていけるのは 思い出と光だけ

shoujo ga asu motteikeru no wa omoide to hikari dake

All she was able to take with her into the next day was light and memories

彼女から見えぬように 少年は顔歪め嘲笑っていた
虚構を剥ぎ取った姿は 男の霊との契約を履行する悪魔

kanojo kara mienu you ni shounen’ wa kao yugame waratteita
kyokou wo hagitotta sugata wa otoko no rei to no keiyaku wo rikou suru akuma

But away from her so that she could not see, the boy twisted his face into a scornful grin
What lay under his torn façade was the devil who had formed a contract with a spiteful ghost

亡き母に向けられた おぞましいあの呪いは
母親の全てを叩き壊すためのもので

naki haha ni mukerareta ozomashii ano noroi wa
hahaoya no subete wo tatakikowasu tame no mono de

The curse which was laid upon Kuuderika’s late mother
Was to break apart everything she was, everything she had

手に入らないのなら壊したい、なんて
子供じみた我侭が生んだ幻覚《Vision》
呪いの対象は “彼女の全て”
愛するクーデリカも含まれて―

te ni hairanai no nara kowashitai, nan’te
kodomojimita wagamama ga un’da vision
noroi no taishou wa “kanojo no subete”
aisuru Kuuderika mo fukumarete

If it can’t be mine, I want to break it?
What childishness, selfishness birthed his vision
The target of the curse was the mother’s “everything”
Thus, her beloved Kuuderika is not exempt

殺しはしない ただじっくりと暗闇へ突き落とす

koroshi wa shinai tada jikkuri to kurayami e tsukiotosu

I will not kill her, but slowly push her deeper into darkness

その悪魔は 自らを霊と騙り 少女の穢れなき心に入り込んだ
彼女は囚われていた 出口のない虚構《Vision》の中に

sono akuma wa mizukara wo rei to katari shoujo no kegarenaki kokoro ni hairikon’da
kanojo wa torawareteita deguchi no nai vision no naka ni

The devil had lied about being a ghost, and made his way into that girl’s pure heart
She was imprisoned inside a vision with no exit

「まだ終わらせはしない。これからもっともっと楽しくなるよ?
 キミが悪魔なわけはない。だって……
 悪魔は―オレの方なんだ」

“mada owarase wa shinai. kore kara motto motto tanoshiku naru yo?
kimi ga akuma na wake wa nai. datte…
akuma wa ore no hou nan’da”

“I will not let this end yet. It’s only going to get more fun from here on out.
Of course you aren’t a devil, after all…
The devil is me.”

飲み込まれる 夜に暗闇の底に
泡沫のように儚く消える幻想《Vision》
生まれてくることも 死にゆくことも
必ず何かの意味があるんだ

nomikomareru yoru ni kurayami no soko ni
utakata no you ni hakanaku kieru vision
umaretekuru koto mo shiniyuku koto mo
kanarazu nanika no imi ga arun’da

She was swallowed up in the depths of the dark of night
Her transient vision disappearing like foam on the water
Surely in both birth and death
There must be some kind of meaning

玩具としての意味を与えられ ただVisionに埋もれゆく

gan’gu to shite no imi wo ataerare tada vision ni umoreyuku

Given meaning as a plaything, ever more was she buried in his vision

繋ぐ光が 黒く光っていることにも気付かずに―

tsunagu hikari ga kuroku hikatteiru koto ni mo kidzukazu ni

Not realizing the light she held on to was shining with black shimmer…

Notes:

There is a Japanese translation that comes along with the English lyrics and i will use it to clarify some confusing parts here.

“She’s a symptom”->”She’s a sign.”

“The crossed truth has been wavering in a heat haze forever”->”The truth drawn (pulled) by a cross shimmers in a mirage, without end.” (As if the truth is Jesus about to be executed.)

“Burn all of her”->”Burn her and everything (she owns)”

“She’s lost in” -> “She was lost in” (as in swallowed up so that she disappeared rather than she is wandering lost in.)

“And there’s no truth or no righteousness” (in that accusation)

“wheeling”->”turning”

“And there is no happiness or no bravery” (in their actions)

VII. Evil Flames
Vocals: Mitsuki
Arrangement: 黒夜葬
Lyrics: Mitsuki
Circle: 少女病
Album: Vision -誓約の閉回路 桎梏の乙女-

She’s a victim
Lost in a nightmare, in purgatory a long time ago
She’s a symptom
The crossed truth has been wavering in a heat haze forever

But there’s no one there to help her up
People shout and curse her
And there’s no remorse or no redemption
Like voice from abyss… Ringing

“Here she is”
“Here is the heretic”
“We should execute her right now!”
All of them joined in to swell the chorus
“Go! Kill her! Kill her! Burn all of her! Shout!!”

She’s a puppet
Lost in a nightmare, in a curse of envy by one ghost
She’s a symptom
The village had fallen into a serious state of decay… oh…

But there’s no one there to help her up
People say she’s a sinner
And there’s no truth or no righteousness
Like spiral staircase… wheeling

“Here she is”
“Here is the devil”
“How on earth can we restore those days?”
They screamed madly with roaring flames
“Go! Kill her! Kill her! Burn all of her! Shout!!”

But there’s no one there to help her up
People want to break her vision
And there’s no happiness or no bravery
Like an ant lion’s pit… falling

“Here she is”
“Here is the heretic”
“We should execute her right now!”
All of them joined in to swell the chorus
“Go! Kill her! Kill her! Burn all of her!”

“Here she is”
“Here is the devil”
“How on earth can we restore those days?”
They screamed madly with roaring flames
“Go! Kill her! Kill her! Kill her! Kill! Burn!!”

Notes:
“The spark that finally lit the fire” equivalent to “the last straw/the straw that broke the camel’s back” but I didn’t want to lose the fire imagery, because it ties back in later.

VI. 無限連鎖の忘却事象
 Mugen’ Ren’sa no Boukyaku Jishou
An Endless Cycle of Oblivion
Vocal: Mitsuki
Arrangement: ピクセルビー
Lyrics: 少女病
Circle: 少女病
Album: Album: Vision -誓約の閉回路 桎梏の乙女-

美しい景観など 今では見る影さえない
荒廃が人心に及ぶことを止める手段はなく

utsukushii keikan’ nado ima de wa miru kage sae nai
kouhai ga jin’shin’ ni oyobu koto wo tomeru shudan’ wa naku

Of the beautiful scenery that once was, not a trace is left behind
There was no way to prevent the decay from affecting villagers’ hearts

濃い霧が瞬く間に 鈍く視界を曇らせて
読み取るべき真実を覆い隠してしまった

koi kiri ga matataku ma ni nibuku shikai wo kumorasete
yomitorubeki shin’jitsu wo ooikakushiteshimatta

Without warning a thick fog fell, clouding the senses
Concealing the truth that should have been seen

行き場のない憎しみと不安の
矛先は全て 憐れの少女に向けられた

yukiba no nai nikushimi to fuan’ no
hokosaki wa subete aware no shoujo ni mukerareta

Having nowhere else to go, their hatred and anxiety
Was all directed towards that one pitiable young girl

生きることが大罪なら 私そのものが無為で無意味で
そんな悲しみがあっていいわけない

ikiru koto ga tsumi nara watashi sono mono ga mui de muimi de
son’na kanashimi ga atte ii wake nai

If my living itself is a sin, then all I have done is nothing, and myself meaningless
There is no way such a sadness should exist…

もう上手に笑えない これまでを否定するようで
辛いけど笑顔じゃ乗り切れない現実もあると知った―

mou jouzu ni waraenai kore made wo hitei suru you de
tsurai kedo egao ja norikirenai gen’jitsu mo aru to shitta

I can no longer smile – It’s as if I’m going back on everything I’ve done
While it hurts, I now know, some realities you cannot overcome with a smile

火種になった事象は 前例のない死の病

hidane ni natta jishou wa zen’rei no nai shi no yamai

The spark that finally lit the fire was an unprecedented fatal disease

「災いの元凶である悪霊憑きの、いや、悪魔の
 息の根をとめることで負の連鎖も根絶できる」
その妄言に縋る程 人々は憔悴しきって…

“wazawai no gen’kyou de aru akuryou tsuki no, iya, akuma no
iki no ne wo tomeru koto de fu no ren’sa mo kon’zetsu dekiru”
sono mougen’ ni sugaru hodo hitobito wa shousui shikitte…

“The cause of all our suffering is that possessed… no, that devil!
If we kill her, we can end this cycle of disaster once and for all!”
The villagers had wasted away so much they could not help but cling to such delusions…

クーデリカを悪魔だと罵り
探す声達が 殺意を持って近づいた

Kuuderika wo akuma da to nonoshiri
sagasu koetachi ga satsui wo motte chikadzuita

They called Kuuderika a devil
Ther voices murderous as they closed in, searching for her

「キミが悪魔なんかじゃないことはオレが知ってる。信じてる」
少年は竦む 少女へと囁く

“kimi ga akuma nan’ka ja nai koto wa ore ga shitteru. shin’jiteru”
shounen’ wa sukumu shoujo e to sasayaku

“I know that you are not a devil. I believe in you.”
Sess whispered to Kuuderika as she cowered

こらえていた涙が その言葉でもう溢れ出た
一人でも構わない 友達ができたことが嬉しくて

koraeteita namida ga sono kotoba de mou afuredeta
hitori demo kawamanai tomodachi ga dekita koto ga ureshikute

Hearing those words the tears she had held back now overflowed
Even if it was only him alone, she was so happy to have a friend

生きることが大罪なら 私そのものが無為で無意味で
そんな悲しみがあっていいわけない

ikiru koto ga tsumi nara watashi sono mono ga mui de muimi de
son’na kanashimi ga atte ii wake nai

If my living itself is a sin, then all I have done is nothing, and myself meaningless
There is no way such a sadness should exist…

もう上手に笑えない これまでを否定するようで
辛いけど笑顔じゃ乗り切れない 現実もあると知った―

mou jouzu ni waraenai kore made wo hitei suru you de
tsuraikedo egao ja norikirenai gen’jitsu mo aru to shitta

I can no longer smile – It’s as if I’m going back on everything I’ve done
While it hurts, I now know, some realities you cannot overcome with a smile
